I would still permit silver cans on a limited basis for people to try out the class on the cheap, but it wouldn't be in the official rules.

First post updated.

Spec tire is the Hard Solaris Spec Premount on the spoked rim.

This is now identical to WCRC Super GT with the exception of 2WD cars being permitted (the "plus").

They will run together, but be scored separately, just like the way it's done in many real 1:1 race series. Not only are you battling for class victory, but for the overall win as well!

FF cars are strongly encouraged to run FF bodies in the interest of scale realism as well as to help the drivers and spectators follow the action.

Thumbs up, Pete I'll be curious to see what is decided about the FF03 at West Coast. I didn't get out there on Tuesday but I heard someone was going to bring one to try out, and Ron was going to see how it went. Hadn't heard anything else about it though. Now we'll have a whole lot of guys running Super GT, which will hopefully encourage more people to jump in!

It was real close racing.
No difference in pace between 4WD & 2WD, but each car had it's sweet spot on the track, made for some great racing.

2WD owns 4WD at the end of the straight, but 4WD gets off the corners quicker.

21.5 Spec is the perfect power for this type of racing.

You can gear really tall, and the same gearing should work pretty well for both tracks. People are running anywhere from 3.2 to 3.8 FDR, and I think most are around 3.5 or so. Motors still come off cool.
